The bread was way too thin on the breakfast sandwiches and you couldn't put any sauce in because of this. This is not normally how there are and its normally very good. I was very disappointed with the café.

Fresh food, lovely location on the pier in Yarmouth, sunny position, good range of home cooked food, fairly basic menu but all tasty and generous portions. Good range of barista coffees and the best apple pie I've ever tasted, would have posted a picture but I ate it! Good value lunch, lots for children including real food choices for them.... More

We found Yarmouth to be a delightful place made all the better by a visit to this lovely cafe. A walk on the pier in the sunshine developed just the appetite for a superb coffee and just-from-the-oven fresh pastry. The service was excellent although it wasn't busy but friendly and properly engaged. We sat outside in the sun but there... More

We always head straight to Gossips after getting off the ferry. There can sometimes be a lengthy queue but it always moves quickly and the staff are always friendly and never flustered. Whether its tea and cake, just a cup of tea or a more substantial meal we are never disappointed.

Every year, I come to Yarmouth and just end up in Gossips by default, knowing full well that I will get great food and a delightful view. And again this year I have not been disappointed. Fresh Isle of Wight crab in a sandwich, followed by the naughtiest cake and house-special hot chocolate... Thank you again for kind service and... More

Popped in for a lite bite for lunch and we were not disappointed. The 4 of us shared a couple of very tasty pizzas and some salads. You can sit and watch the ferry come in right past the window! Nice and clean and tidy inside, would return.

We found this little cafe by chance, we are a family of 6 so the kids had a cooked breakfast £4.60 & 2 full English with Orange Juice & coffee. The staff were excellent, always very attentive and polite. We all enjoyed our food and will definitely return when we next visit Yarmouth
